VSEA State Worker Injuries

Consult With VT State Workers’ Compensation Experts

State workers help maintain the proper functioning of Vermont’s infrastructure, from road work to the court system and law enforcement. But the work can lead to situations that put the State worker in harm’s way. Whether working with heavy machinery and materials or in the crossfire of crime, Vermont State workers can suffer injuries and illnesses that may entitle them to workers’ compensation benefits. Over the past two decades, Biggam, Fox & Skinner has successfully handled hundreds of cases for Vermont State workers and VSEA members.

state-workers-smReverse the State’s Poor Decisions

At Biggam, Fox & Skinner, we will help you reverse poor decisions made by the State’s Office of Workers’ Compensation (formerly Risk Management). These decisions can include:

  • Making you take sick time for medical appointments related to workers’ compensation (this is illegal in Vermont).
  • Taking the full 21 days to accept or deny your claim when it is clear that you were hurt at work.
  • Saying they didn’t receive your medical records when you know they did.
  • Not reimbursing your mileage for going to appointments.

How do Vermont State workers get injured?

Perhaps you are unable to work because of a mishap with a loader, cement mixer, or scaffolding, or an accident involving a weapon, a criminal assault, or chemical exposure. You may have spinal, neck, or back injuries from a motor vehicle accident suffered while working for a State agency. Or perhaps you fell at work, or you have a long-term illness, such as heart disease, from sedentary or high-stress work. You may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for any of these injuries and illnesses.
